What Should I Expect?

Nuclear medicine is capable of imaging a wide range of your bodies functions, from how healthy your heart is to how well your kidneys are functioning. Your technologist will go over the specific details of your exam with you, but in general, a simple IV injection of the tracer is all that is required to get the information your doctor needs to know.

Unlike many other imaging modalities, the gamma camera used in nuclear medicine does not fully enclose the patient. Two large rectangular panels will be positioned over the area your doctor is interested in and may either slowly rotate around you or remain stationary depending on the exam ordered.
